Almost since the moment we saw the iPhone 5 and Nexus 4 launch rumors started towards what might be next. This is common with almost all popular smartphone releases, and now we are many months on the rumors for Nexus 5 and iPhone 5S/6 have reached a state of extreme excitement, but the latest update isn’t for everyone and some people like to purchase a phone right before the next-generation launches.

For some people this is thanks to their contract ending or a broken phone, so they just upgrade with little thought about how long to the next-gen releases.
Nexus 4 vs. iPhone 5 vs. 4S for budget opportunists – then we have those buyers that always planned to wait until a month or two before the next-generation of smartphone, and this would be for a low price opportunity that falls within their budget. We have seen Apple use the older iPhones as budget versions in the past, and they launch a new generation while dropping the price of an older model to attract sales verses some budget Android phones.
